CALUMET CITY | The Calumet City Elementary District 155 School Board seated its new members on Monday, based on results from the April 9 election.
New member Teresa Kic was sworn in with re-elected members Guadalupe Brantley, Stanley Long and Robert Oswald.
Kic, an insurance agent, said she ran to become more involved in the community.
She said she intends to promote fiscal responsibility and wants to "generate new ideas to keep the community growing to keep bringing in new enrollment."
The board unanimously elected Long to remain as board president. Guy Eveland will continue as board vice president and Nick Valle as board secretary.
Diane Kreuger, who did not seek re-election, was not present on Monday. But Eveland recognized Kreuger for her 16 years of service to the district.
In other district news, Julie Hassel has been hired by the board to replace Francisco Sanchez as principal at Wentworth Intermediate School for the 2013-2014 school year.
Hassel had been serving as an assistant principal at the school.
D.155 Superintendent Troy Paraday said the board selected Hassel from a pool of 90 candidates.
"We felt that she had the skills that most matched those items that we needed over in the intermediate," Paraday said.
